1 out of 5 eggs Don't buy it 02/10/2014

This review is from: Microsoft Windows 8.1 64-bit

Pros:

fast boot time, stable, built in malware protection

Cons:

UI makes all pros a moot point. The core of Win 8 is utterly obliterated by a digital abomination called Windows Tiles aka Metro. It amazes me how so many highly paid talented people come up with this mess? Was there any feedback from any test users? Did they even care what people thought? Was there any testing done?

Other Thoughts:

I have no problems with change if the change is for the better. The fact is Windows 8 is not easier to use compared to Windows 7. Gestures and bars are not intuitive and it would interrupt my activity. The Store is overpriced and with few apps and ever fewer worth mentioning. Also apps are overpriced, Angry Birds Star Wars is $3.49 and $2.99 at Google play, Ninja Fruit is $1.99 and $0.99 at Google Play store and so on.

I already own an Android tablet and an Android phone. I wanted a functional desktop OS and Windows 8 is not it. I strongly recommend Start8 because only after installing this software I was able to get any work done.
